Exhibition to run from the 22nd – 27th January 2022 At Samah Art Gallery in Zamalek
From the 22nd to the 27th of January 2022, a solo exhibition for up-and-coming abstract painter, Riham El Adl will take place at Samah Art Gallery in Zamalek. The exhibition includes 22 paintings that the artist has been working on over the last year in Amsterdam where she currently lives.
“I worked on these paintings during a very difficult period in my life but the support and love I got from my family and friends and producing this big collection of paintings helped me immensely in moving forward in my healing and recovery,” El Adl said.
“Hence, I decided to call this exhibition, ‘Moving Forward’ – because no matter how difficult the challenges life throws at you, it is critical that we don’t give up and that we channel our fears into positive thinking and actions to be able to move forward in life. The power of positive thinking is immense, more than we can imagine.”
El Adl is breaking into the international art scene. Most recently in June 2021, she won the main prize at the IV Biennale Della Versilia, a prestigious international art fair in Florence, Italy where she participated with two paintings.
This year, she will be part of an international art fair at the Crypt Gallery in London from the 14th -19th of May.
El Adl has been painting only for the last two and half years after deciding to make a bold move and leave a career that spans 18 years in the field of corporate communications to become an abstract painter. Her first solo exhibition titled ‘Fiesta’ took place in Oct. 2020 in Cairo.
